    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent product Received the vest in just a few days from ordering it. I bought it for my husband who couldn't believe that it was exactly what he was looking for -- a lightweight, yet warm fleece vest that fit well and not bulky. It is well designed...enough pockets on the outside and a drawstring at the waist to pull in should he need it. The fact that it is also windproof is a plus in the northwest winters. I just wish it had an inside pocket for a billfold or small keys.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it , hate it. Like the wind protection, but the collar chafes your face when you have it slightly opened. Needs a little bit of fleece around the collar to soften when rubbing. Otherwise, I like it. Used it for downhill spring skiing @Durango Mountain and it kept me warm enough when the sun was out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Apex stuff I use the Apex vest and jacket. They both seem very warm relative to the weight. It doesn't stuff like a down vest but I would not generally intend to remove this layer so that material is fine for my use case. It adds great warmth without a lot of layer bulk or volume. This quality makes it a good indoor/outdoor option for those cooler months in north Georgia.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight vest I really love this vest, I was looking for a replacement for some older fleece vests, this fit the bill and fits nicely under other jackets for layering if the weather is colder. I have not found anything to downgrade this vest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Benchmark This is my second Bionic vest the first became a full time garment on the job and was missed at home and on the trail, so I bought a second one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good light mid-layer I use this vest underneath a wind/rain layer when hiking or biking to provide that little extra warmth you need on cooler days. I think of myself more as a Large but the Medium fits pretty well with a normal synthetic underlayer. It's well made and comfortable, not breathable, but it provides that touch of extra warmth and wind protection you need here in the high desert.
